Cool Postmark- World’s Panama Pacific Exposition 1915

This postcard, mailed in September of 1911 in San Francisco, was already advertising for the World’s Panama Pacific Exposition in 1915 by using a postmark advertising such. The exposition took over 3 years to build, and its purpose was to celebrate the Panama Canal being completed, along with commemorating the the 400th anniversary of the Pacific Ocean being discovered by Balboa. The main attraction of this fair was the Tower of Jewels, a building that was 435 feet high covered in over 100,000 faceted jewels.

On the website’s homepage that I linked to earlier, the introduction claims this fair to be “arguably the most beloved worlds fair that this country has ever seen.” While this fair sounds magnificent, clearly I am in favor of 1933/34 Chicago World’s Fair being the best 🙂
